    I worked at ADM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large enough you can continue advancement. Salary pretty descent with good benefits. Lots of opportunity to explore and find what job makes you happy.

    Cons

    Location is not the best (Decatur, IL). A lot of micromanagement and disconnect with upper management. Corporate policies tend to remove a personal relationship to job satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Have to keep people interested to stay.

    I worked at ADM as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some friendly people there but varies. Some supervisors are good while others are not so good.

    Cons

    Needs management restructuring especially in human resources. Too many unqalified people in positions they are not qualified for and too many over qualified people in positions they should be well over.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure!

    Pros

    Large company, you'll never run out of runway

    Cons

    a scrambled mess. The company grew to fast with hundreds of different ERP's and siloed companies. They are trying to transform to 1ADM, but it will be ten years before it's changed for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your workers and front line supervisors.

    Pros

    Amazing. Absolutely loved the place. Great benefits, great people, everyday was a great day.

    Everyday was a challenge. A time to look in the mirror and say is all the fun and stress worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Just value your people. They are your most valuable source of ideas feedback and innovation.

    I worked at ADM as an intern

    Pros

    Good pay. Everyone tries to be helpful. They try to show you many different aspects of the business as an intern.

    Cons

    Not many people at my location liked their job. Lots of tension with the manager and the rest of the employees, made going to work difficult. Overall just a very average internship.
